Cubert St Cuthbert (Cornish: Lannowynn) is an ancient parish in Cornwall.
The village is named after the Welsh missionary St Cubert who, as a companion of St Carantoc, brought the Christian faith to this part of Cornwall, and to whom the church is dedicated. Unlike his companion St Carantoc—who travelled on to Brittany--St Cubert returned to Wales becoming abbot of his monastery and, according to the Welsh Chronicles, dying in 775 A.D.
The church and spire were considerably damaged by lightning on Monday, 10th April 1848; they were restored in 1852.
